When asked by the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) who God is to him, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump went off on a random tangent about his property holdings and business deals.
CBN’s David Brody posed the question to Trump during a one-on-one interview with the Manhattan real estate mogul earlier this week.
“Who is God to you? What are some of your thoughts on this?” Brody asked. “Clearly, you’re a smart man, you’re a smart businessman, you’ve contemplated this before or have you contemplated it?”
“Here we are on the Pacific Ocean. How did I ever own this?” Trump told Brody. “I bought it fifteen years ago. I made one of the great deals they say ever, this land.”
“So nobody, no thing, no there’s nothing like God,” Trump eventually concluded.

Well, I say God is the ultimate. You know, you look at this. You look at this incr–here we are on the Pacific Ocean. How did I ever own this? I bought it fifteen years ago. I made one of the great deals they say ever, this land. I have no mortgage on it as you–I will certify and represent to you. And I was able to buy this and, you know, make a great deal. That’s what I want to do for this country. Make great deals. We have to. We have to bring it back, but God is the ultimate. I mean, God created this. And, you know, here’s the Pacific Ocean right behind us. So, uh, nobody, no thing, no there’s nothing like God.
